This code comes up when one of the wheel speeds sensors have stopped working. Here is a video that will show you how to run the codes to see which one it is.
Here is a guide that will help you test the sensor if you do not have scanner.
An error has been detected in the traction control system and you need to retrieve the trouble codes to understand what is wrong and proceed with diagnostics and rectification.
From the book:
RETRIEVING DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODES
Some speed sensor DTCs cannot be retrieved using following procedure. See SPEED SENSOR DIAGNOSTICS for retrieving other speed sensor DTCs.
NOTE: DO NOT start engine when retrieving diagnostic codes.
ABS & TRAC OFF Light Diagnostics
1. Ensure battery voltage is 12 volts. Turn ignition switch to ON position. ABS, TRAC OFF and SLIP indicator lights should illuminate, then go out after 3 seconds. If warning lights do not illuminate, check fuses, bulbs, and appropriate wiring harnesses.
2. Using a jumper wire, jumper check connector terminals Tc and E1 of DLC1 or DLC2. See Fig. 1 -Fig. 2 . If a malfunction is detected, 4 seconds will elapse and ABS or TRAC OFF indicator light will begin to flash a 2-digit Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). First number of blinks will equal first digit in a code. After a 1.5-second pause, second number of blinks will equal second digit in a code.
3. If 2 or more codes are stored, there will be a 2.5-second pause between each code. After all codes are flashed, there will be a 4-second pause and all codes will repeat. If ABS and TRAC system are functioning normally, and no DTCs are present, ABS and TRAC OFF indicator lights will blink 2 times per second. For code definitions, see DTC DEFINITIONS table. After replacing or repairing components, clear diagnostic codes.
For speed sensor DTCs, connect jumper wire between terminals Ts and E1 of DLC1.
Here is how the wheel sensors are mounted.
